Generations of Battalion Commanders IDF Spokesman

Since its establishment, commanders of the Oz 77 Battalion have gathered together at Kibbutz Al-Rom, reminisced, shared photographs, and recalled shared experiences of the 7th Brigade.

7th Brigade Commander Col. Roman Gofman attended the latest meeting and spoke with gathered commanders of the 7th Brigade’s spirit, the brotherhood among the fighters, brigade operations, and today’s increased motivation to enlist in the IDF.

Current Battalion Commander Lt. Col. Shaul Yisraeli said “the Oz Battalion is an ethos that expresses the sense of responsibility and mutual accountability in the cleanest possible manner. A power that stems from the joy of giving and love of the Land.

“I could feel the concern, the love, and the deep connection to the battalion, the 7th Brigade, and the IDF, as if everyone was really still the Commander,” related Lt. Col. Yisraeli.

From Kibbutz Al-Rom, the commanders continued to tour the Valley of Tears, where the battalion fought in the battles of the Yom Kippur War.

During the difficult battle, the Battalion’s soldiers demonstrated colossal courage and resourcefulness, blocking the attack of some 160 Syrian tanks. Later, the Battalion penetrated the Syrian border and assisted in the conquest and possession of an enclave on Syrian soil. Many of the battalion commanders received different medals for their performance in the war.

Today the battalion is deployed in the same sector as that difficult battle with unified commanders and fighters, and with best in technology and resources, standing in constant readiness.
